  • BiDi optics utilize a standards based QSFP form factor and will operate in any 40G QSFP port. They use Wave Division Multiplexing (WDM) internally to merge 8 10G electrical lanes onto two strands of fiber using 20Gs of bi-directional bandwidth per strand over 4 light wavelengths. A BiDi optic is required at each end of the link. BiDi optics will be exclusively available from Cisco as they are based on Cisco patents, but they will be available for any Nexus product that utilizes QSFP ports.
